TRIGGER WARNING: This is not intended for Philophiles. You should know who you are, but if you feel uncertain, check yourself against these points. (This list will open in a new tab.)
“The Saga of St. Phil and Devil Don” is my fictional account of The Everly Brothers. Writing it relieves stress caused by Philophiles and their Internet meme of the perfection of Phil Everly and the contrasting vileness of Don Everly.
The story is at times whimsical and at times a bit risqué, but it is always meant to be fun. Much of it is verbal riffing on anecdotes and photos from the lives of Don Everly and his brother.
There are supernatural elements. Both brothers can talk, sing, read, and write from birth. St. Phil can fly, pretty much as Superman flies, only St. Phil does not have a cape. Instead, he has a robe, sandals, and halo. Devil Don? Well, it seems that from birth, he is attended by adoring females, young and old and in between. They are known collectively as the “Handmaidens,” and although they themselves do not have supernatural powers, they protect and nurture Devil Don.
The Saga is unfinished. I insert new sections where they best fit chronologically, although they were not written in chronological order. I have no idea how long The Saga will become, or even if I will ever finish it. You can navigate to specific subsections by means of the “Fiction” submenu (click the arrowhead across from the work “Fiction.”
